Islamabad [Pakistan], May 8 (ANI): The Indian woman, whose husband claimed that she was stranded inside the Indian High Commission office in Islamabad, is being provided necessary consular access. According to sources, the Commission is in constant touch with the Pakistan Foreign Office on the matter and the girl's family in India. Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria has said that Uzma of Indian orgin and married to Tahir Ali, a Pakistani, who 'went missing' from the Indian High Commission last week, is 'stranded' inside the building, reports the Dawn. Uzma, reportedly, met Ali in Malaysia where the latter was working as a taxi driver eight months ago. The two had a court marriage on May 3, two days after Uzma arrived in Pakistan via the Wagah border. Ali alleged that they both went to the Indian High commission to submit visa application form after Uzma's brother invited them to India. "At the Indian embassy window, she asked about Adnan. A while later, a man came out and took her inside through gate number six. I waited and waited, and then at 7 p.m., I asked at the embassy gate if my wife Uzma was inside. They told me no one was inside," Dawn quoted Ali, as saying. (ANI)
